I dropped my brand new iPad two days ago. The screen cracked in the corner. Tears flowed. It was the most horrific sight ever, made only worse by the fact that I refused to buy AppleCare+. Learning lessons the hard way is never fun, but mostly, I’m just pissed that I didn’t hear about this crazy screen protector that can absorb heavy amounts of damage while leaving an iDevice’s screen perfectly intact.
Check out this video where an iPhone screen survives a blow from a hammer:
I’ve never had a hunger to crack almonds on my iPhone, but it’s great to know that now I can use my iPad as a cutting board next time I brave my kitchen. The secret to Buff Lab’s ultra-protective iPhone screens is that they are composed of four layers that cushion the impact, absorb it, and then disperse the shock across the surface area of the phone so that it’s not concentrated at one small point on the iPhone screen. The fourth layer is a silicon adhesive that allows users to easily remove and reposition the screen protector onto other devices. Buff Labs doesn’t sell their protectors directly, but you can find them online selling between $20 to $30 a piece.
